Five pitches: 17, 16, 17, 18, 17. Climb the standard route out of Cirque Creek to the high basin left of the Skyline Buttress. To reach the start, head leftwards up into a rocky gully to the base of the West Face. You will see a pillar towering over the top of the gully. Climb up and right over this pillar and move rightwards along a ledge system, bypassing a wide crack until reaching a nice hand-crack approximately 3m further on. Angle towards the V-groove you’ll have seen from down in the gully. Sensational 40m pitch.
